maybe I need a self-help book on blogging?

First, apologies for not keeping the blog up to date. Been crazy "doing media," which I guess is a good thing, even if you sometimes wonder who's out there watching/listening. (I say this because I haven't exactly been doing The Today Show or GMA, at least not as of yet. Tony Snow's weekend show for Fox has been the biggest TV hit so far.) Still, there's always some positive correlation between the TV/radio I do, and the book's current standing on Amazon. Same thing with reviews, good or bad. Which I guess points to the truth of the old PR line, "I don't care what you say about me...just spell the name right." On the other hand, I do get annoyed at reviewers like, say, Chris Lehmann, who can't meet even THAT minimal standard (i.e. spell the name right). In the course of panning the book and just about everything it stood for in his Washington Post review, Lehmann said the title acronym stood for "self-help and motivation"--which doesn't even really make sense, in the context of how I use the term in the book... Lehmann's bio says he's a former editor of Congressional Quarterly. Hope he was more attentive to detail in chronicling the goings-on in the halls of government... More later...another crazy day tomorrow...
